Mauricio Pochettino says he is unsure whether Dele Alli and Harry Winks will be able to recover from injury in time to face Manchester City on Wednesday.
Spurs travel to the Etihad Stadium to play City in their Champions League quarter-final second leg.
Alli may miss the game after breaking his hand in the first leg on Tuesday, while Winks suffered a groin injury in training.
Following Saturday's 4-0 victory over Huddersfield, Pochettino said of Alli: "We'll see because we are not sure.
"He is doing some training sessions with protection. He needs to feel comfortable. It is a little bit painful because he broke his hand in two different places.
"It all depends on time. We will see if we arrive in a position where he is comfortable to play. We'll see, today is difficult to know."
When asked about Winks' chances of facing City, Pochettino said: "In the middle of training he started to feel something painful in his groin.
"He's a player we need to assess tomorrow, and then after tomorrow take a decision. We are optimistic, but you know there is doubt."
Both Alli and Winks missed the 4-0 thrashing of Huddersfield in the Premier League.
Spurs will already be without Harry Kane for the crucial clash against City, after he suffered a potentially season-ending ankle injury in the first leg at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
